. thank you! >> all right. we're watching mitt romney there in springfield, virginia. only 40 days until the election. president obama we're also watching for as well. he's also in virginia, expected to speak in virginia beach moments from now. you see the podium there. virginia, a very important swing state. 13 electoral votes in that state. the recent polls now showing that president obama is slightly, slightly ahead of romney in the state. the last cnn poll of polls for virginia, he was leading 50% to romney's 44%. you might recall back in 2008 president obama won virginia and became the first democrat since 1964, lyndon johnson to actually win that state and that was significant. i'll bring in jim acosta who is traveling with mitt romney. he's at the event talking a little bit about the message we heard from mitt romney. clearly it's important for him to reach the working class. that came in some of the comments he made regarding trade with china. what does he need to do? what does his team think they need to do to make sure he holds on to virginia? >> reporter: suzanne, as you know,
, the president, i think to do it again. how does the romney campaign respond to that? >> reporter: that's right. if president obama were to win the state of virginia because no democrat had won it since lyndon johnson in 1964, he would be the first democrat to do it twice in a generation. so obviously it is a big challenge for the president to try to win this critical battleground state one more time. that's why mitt romney is in the state today trying to take it away from him. this state, let's be honest about this, is very critical in terms of putting together the electoral map that the romney campaign needs to win this election. and it was no surprise to see both of these campaigns going back and forth over issues of national defense. mitt romney was here just about an hour ago talking about this and talking about those looming defense budget cuts that are coming as part of that fiscal cliff that we all have been talking about coming up at the end of the year. mitt romney said he would make sure that those cuts are not put into place where, if he becomes president, we'll reverse those cuts o
been making so many headlines right now and you mitt romney. we talked a lot about that red line whether the president is clear enough making a red line with iran. netanyahu publicly criticizing the administration for not doing that romney citing with netanyahu. take a listen to the family we met with last night who are supporting president obama. >> i think he has made it hard for the united states to keep israel with this special ally status that it's had because the united states can't be pushed around by anyone. i just think that obama is being very rational and reasonable to a bully right now. >> the president taking the iran threat seriously enough right now or does netanyahu have a point? >> he has built an international coalition. he has succeeded in buildi in i embargo against iran unprecedented. >> mitt romney said things like president obama has "thrown allies like israel under the bus." he also said on "60 minutes" over the weekend that the president made a mistake by not meeting with netanyahu. the next family we met with certainly agrees,ays the president still has
that governor romney switch that momentum as that voting continues wolf, 40 days right up to election day. >> everyone agrees, john, iowa very much in play right now, right? >> reporter: yes. it's one of the states -- we have nine states we call toss-ups. this is one of them. seven of those nine states allow some form of in person early voting. iowa is still in play, but iowa is one of those states that have drifted a bit in the president's favor. and, again, this is a state where republicans did very well in 2010. they believe they have some energy on the ground. but they've watched the last ten days, wolf, if you talk to them privately, they're not happy with the romney strategy. they're not happy with the romney advertisements. and they think first and foremost he must have a very, very strong debate on the question of which candidate can better handle the economy. they say he must do that in that first week of october to turn the tide here. >> all right. john will be joining us later in "the situation room" as well. thanks, john, very much. >>> today we learned the president plans a f
have thought. i k hisroubles in the polling also relate to his byan statement. you know, romney's goi to have to come up with something to combathis with. and thus far his campan doesseem to kno what to do. the shot they're running right romn in the commercial looking athe camera probably is their most effective ad to combat this the president and i both care out pele that my plans will help them. running. ng swing state ad it's >>hat do you think of thi roland? >> the problem is the ad wa portrayed, erick. the prlem is that the words eomingdictly o of mitt romney's mouth. when healls folks ctims, when he talks abo iner of all they want are free fo, housing, thgs along those lives. you're an american out there and you're struggling whe it comes to yo budget and grocerieou are concerned out that. the botm l is mittomney is not resing spificly to this ad. he tried to double downn it what it ds is gives the rc simplut and that's the la tngou need when you're trying to pick up ne, two, three points th you itically need in tse ates. me time though, i want you to respond that ick, but ae
in the right track, and in every category the country is trusting obama over romney. this is like the foreign policy economy. lou: that is just about all there is, think. romney is in trouble. >> there is no question that this is a very tight race. some of these polls were they show obama heading in ohio, they are really over sampling democrats and they're also overestimating democratic turnout because they're using -- >> i think everybody will stipulate to that. the deal is, this guy, we can't find paul ryan on the campaign trail. >> i disagree. at that ron is connecting and rain is connecting. they're generating huge crowds. the only reason people say he is not connecting is because the left-wing media is telling you he's of connecting. that's not true. >> i'm disappointed in some of the romney messaging. when he came out in that ad and said he was talking about the middle class and now obamacare is about the middle-class, i thought that was a misstep. it barack obamacare about the middle class would not be raising taxes. i feel like now is the time were you need to really hit obama strong,
is right-wing. with that said, i want to talk about iran. mitt romney he doesn't have any reason to run for president, his life is made. he is collected $20 million a year doing absolutely nothing. he doesn't have a reason to run for president. he's not trying to help the people, ease shelby specially the poor why is he running? for rich people. the israel guy is going to tell him go to iron and he is going to go to iran. he doesn't have any backbone. he goes which ever the way the wind blows. hey he's going to go to war with iran. he whatever the donors tell him. what do you think? >> guest: thank you for your questions. firsten 0 the media. i have departmented a healthy respect for the media. our system of government couldn't work without them. i think we are lucky to have them. on governor romney, all i can say he's been a successful person in whatever he's done. he's had a successful business career, he was -- i think he was a good governor of mississippi in many ways. i live in massachusetts. but my own point of view, he's had a tough presidential campaign. he has 47% mark was dama
developed, believe it or not, populist appeal. he's not, i think, by nature a populist, nor is mitt romney. i call obama the elite of education and romney the elite of wealth. but when it comes to personal appeal to voters, obama is clearly ahead right now as you can see from the figures. and if you look at the job approval ratings, the latest job approval ratings on page 2 all are 50% or higher, which is the critical threshold for a president who's running for re-election. and on the back page you'll find the latest senate rankings where democrats have picked up some momentum. today we're talking about national security, and in about an hour, little over, i think the president will be addressing the united nations. so, um, this could not be timelier. we have three guests, all of whom have had pentagon positions in the obama administration, and i believe you're all on the national security advisory committee for the re-election campaign? so you're political as well as foreign policy experts. i'm going to introduce them one at a time, and then as i introduce them, i am going to put a questi
